Emma Stone was surrounded by some of her favourite people at an event in Cresskill, New Jersey today. She attended the 2013 Peace, Love & A Cure Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation benefit with her mother, Krista, and brother, Spencer, and the three stuck together for photos and as they addressed a crowd that included Gayle King and Mary J. Blige. Emma’s mother is a breast cancer survivor, and a couple of years ago, when Krista was declared cancer-free, she and Emma got matching tattoos to mark the occasion: a little pair of bird feet designed by Paul McCartney. Today Emma also had the support of her boyfriend, Andrew Garfield, who gave her a sweet kiss at the benefit.
Andrew Garfield had a busy day on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 NYC set yesterday, suiting up in his famous red and blue outfit to film some fight scenes with one of the new resident bad guys, Paul Giamatti. Paul is playing The Rhino, who in the comic book wears a special suit that gives him superhuman strength and speed. In the scenes shot yesterday it appears he ends up with his pants down opposite the cheeky Spider-Man. When he wasn’t shooting, Andrew took some time out to meet with young fans.
Meanwhile, Spider-Man leading lady and Andrew’s girlfriend, Emma Stone, was also in NYC yesterday but didn’t report to set. Instead, the actress did a snack run at a local grocery store. But in recent weeks Emma has been hard at work filming the sequel to last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man and was even photographed at a location that held a potentially big spoiler for her character, Gwen Stacy.
This week's casting news is fun, with Game of Thrones star Richard Madden (better known as Robb Stark) signing on for Disney's live-action Cinderella, Jessica Alba boarding an indie romantic comedy, and Andrew Garfield signing on for a Martin Scorsese film.

Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde met up in NYC on Saturday for Revlon's annual Run/Walk For Women. The duo, who are ambassadors for the brand, hosted the event, which helps raise money for research, treatment, and support for medically underserved women with cancer. Olivia urged fans to join them for the cause on Twitter on Friday, writing, "Emma Stone and I need you to come hang out with us tomorrow: Saturday. In NYC. Don't stand us up!"
Emma shared her beauty tips during last week's launch of Revlon's new Lash Potion Mascara in the Big Apple. When she's not working with the beauty brand, Emma's been spending time with boyfriend Andrew Garfield, and the couple attended the opening-night party for the new play Bull on Thursday. He joined her again for the race and brought along a service dog that they walked with while showing PDA for each other.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield shared a giggle, a hug and a kiss while filming a scene for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in NYC last night. The onscreen and offscreen couple met up on a fake Christmas market that was meant to mimic Union Square's famed holiday bazaar. Emma and Andrew skipped last weekend's MTV Movie Awards to stay on the East Cost and continue work on their upcoming action flick. Emma had good reason to miss the awards show, as she has been pulling double-duty in the Big Apple this month. She is also working on her new film, Birdman, while taking breaks from the Spidey set.
With the craziness of awards season dying down, most celebrities have been taking time to relax. After a massive few months, Ben Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner looked relaxed and happy as they stepped out for a romantic dinner in Santa Monica, while Naomi Watts took in the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week (alongside another stylish actress). Miranda Kerr switched up her time, one day taking son Flynn to a playground with Orlando Bloom's mum, the other day filming a Japanese TV commercial in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley saved a cute dog from rough seas and Kristen Stewart had a night out with a Twilight co-star. See? It was all fun and games this week!

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone left a breakfast joint in the West Village yesterday holding hands. Emma and Andrew both wore coats and hats for the outing and seemed to be in good spirits as they smiled and waved. The meal was a break for Andrew, who has been filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 all week. Andrew spent time yesterday on set doing a few stretches to warm up, and earlier this week he was back in his Spidey-suit hanging upside down. His new castmate, Shailene Woodley, also joined him on set for several scenes. Shailene will take on the role of Mary Jane Watson, while Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti are also signing on for the sequel. Andrew's on and off-screen love, Emma Stone, will return as Gwen Stacy.
